Acelerex has been engaged by the World Bank to seek information on Hybrid Project PPAs.
If you have familiarity, experience, and or expertise in hybrid solar plus storage projects and the associated PPAs and you have interest to share the associated information on hybrid projects and hybrid project PPAs then please contact us at [email protected]
The types of PPA business models that information is sought for are:
- Two-part Contract for PV and BESS (Solar and BESS contracted separately)
- Fully Dispatchable PPA (solar and storage fully dispatchable by buyer)
- Blended PPA (single rate PPA with solar and storage in the rate)
- Time-Variant PPA (time of use rate PPA)
- 24×7 PPA (rates for 24×7 firm power PPA’s of solar and storage)
Of particular interest are actual projects with hybrid PPAs and in the context of replacing diesel systems or for hybrid operations with diesel systems. However, information for hybrid projects and hybrid project PPAs in any country or fuel mix of grid is of interest.
The useful types of information for hybrid projects and hybrid project PPAs are:
- hybrid project descriptions and grid services provided
- template or executed hybrid project PPA’s
- buyer, seller, government, regulator, or rate payer risk analysis of hybrid project PPA’s
- stakeholder viewpoints of hybrid project PPA’s
Based on your experience or interests in Hybrid Project PPAs, please answer any of the following survey questions that is relevant to your organization:

Have you worked on or currently working on a PPA for Hybrid project with solar and storage?
If yes on above:
a. What is the project?
b. What is the use-cases or applications of storage in the Hybrid project? For example: Frequency & voltage control, demand response, renewable shifting, VRE ramp control, etc.
c. What is the type of the project? For example: Standalone Storage, Storage with Solar, Storage with Wind
d. Current status of the project? For example: pre-feasibility, design phase, procurement, construction, operation.
e. Is the project privately or publicly owned
Can you list business models you have seen in PPA’s for solar and storage projects? (energy payment, capacity payment, energy and capacity payment or others)

Would your you or your organization like to be interviewed by the World Bank on your responses to this survey (Yes/No)
If you or anyone at your organization would be available to speak with the World Bank, Acelerex is arranging one-to-one conference calls for 30-60mins with the World Bank to discuss Hybrid Project PPA topics over the next 3 weeks. We are looking to interview 20-30 organizations with interests in Hybrid Projects and the World Bank would be happy to have your inputs.
Any survey responses received will be treated confidentially and will only be shared with the World Bank for stakeholder inputs to the Hybrid Project PPA’s framework. For response to survey please send to [email protected]
